I fell off the wagon yet again. I have been meaning to start tracking and working out. But company and a lot of hours working kind of took the front seat to tracking in the back. Here I go again...more excuses. Then I received some spark... Read more

I hate the fluctuating scale! Maybe I should not be weighing myself every day. I know I should not be weighing myself every day. But it is habit, and a hard one to break. Today is day 31 of logging into Sparkpeople. I have lost weight h... Read more

Sunday, October 11, 2015      3 comments

Yesterday I blogged about being kind of stuck. This morning was weigh in for one of my challenges. I was up a pound and a half. Ugh. But it doesn't matter. Why? Because I know that if I stay on the right track, things will turn around. ... Read more
